REPORT: Biden ‘Under Investigation’ By Government Accountability Office

Published

on

Joe Biden

Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly “under investigation” by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), also known as “the investigative arm of Congress,” for halting billions of dollars in payments to be spent on former-President Trump’s border wall.

“On his first day in office, Biden hit pause on billions of dollars set to be spent on his predecessor’s long-touted barrier between the U.S. and Mexico while his administration figured out next steps for the money,” Politico reported. “Now the Government Accountability Office is launching a review to determine whether the new president broke the law by freezing the money in violation of budget rules designed to keep Congress in control of the cash flow, the federal watchdog confirmed this week.”

Last week, a letter sent to the GAO from forty Senate Republicans claimed that Biden’s actions were “a blatant violation of federal law” and Biden’s suspension of border wall construction and “infringe on Congress’s constitutional power of the purse.”

“The President’s actions directly contributed to this unfortunate, yet entirely avoidable, scenario,” the letter said, referring to the record levels of illegal immigration that has overwhelmed the southern border. “They are also a blatant violation of federal law and infringe on Congress’s constitutional power of the purse. We write regarding these actions. We believe they violated the Impoundment Control Act (ICA), as interpreted by your office, and we request your legal opinion on the matter. Prompt action to end these violations is required to restore order at the border.”

The letter points out that in Department of Homeland Security appropriation bills for fiscal year 2020 and 2021 “Congress provided nearly three billion dollars ‘for the construction of a barrier system along the southwest border.’”

The news comes as levels of illegal immigration exceed six times “the crisis level,” as defined by the Obama administration, and the number of child migrants being held in the custody of the U.S. government reaching nearly double the previous record.

Instead of investing in border security, the Biden administration has been handling its self-created border crisis by choosing to release illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States without setting a court date, incentivizing further illegal immigration and ostensibly fulfilling Biden’s promise to migrants that the United States would be a “safe haven” for them.

    OF COURSE IT’S ILLEGAL for Dementia Joe to freeze the funds !! Texas and any other Republican State along the Border SHOULD be finishing the wall themselves, since the Dems won’t do it !! It’s a matter of both National Security AND the Security of ALL the Border States !! Let’s see how many PATRIOTIC Construction Companies step up to the plate and get the wall finished !!

    One can only hope the agencies that were created to protect the rights and safety of the American people live up to their promise. The issue is that the Deep State runs deep in areas of government, education, big tech, big pharma, news media, and politics. The weeds need to be dug up at the roots, the grounds fertilized before a fresh clean crop can be planted.

    Of course he did that. Did anyone think he would do otherwise. I just don’t know why the Government is not doing anything to his son and seeing what is on the laptops. And also see “Who the Big Guy is,getting the 10%”

    The power of the purse held by Congress is guaranteed by the Constitution. Maybe Biden’s advisors should look at the rule of law before they allow him to just abruptly do anything. His advisors are making him look the complete fool.

    The border is being run over due to Biden’s king like decisions. He should have never gotten away with all the EO he signed. He has hurt America badly during this Covid-19 battle. Yesterday & today you hear more about not giving covid tests to the illegals and no paperwork to appear for their hearing. I don’t want them released into America to possibility spread the virus around again. Our Michigan rulers has people behind bars for spreading the virus by taking care of themselves. Shame on all Democrats that voted for this foolish man. I pray that our people in America will survive but if he continues he will murder all of us! He has over stepped himself and brought no unity as promised!

      Its absurd to think Biden is making these decisions on his own! Question is, who’s pulling his strings?
      The country as a whole will suffer with the border states carrying brunt of this fiasco! If you voted for Biden you own this!

DeSantis to Legislate Ban Working With Contractors who Help Biden’s ‘Mass Human Smuggling Operation’

Published

on

Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle when it comes to helping illegal immigrants do things, well, illegally, he wants the perpetrators to have consequences.

Speaking specifically about contractors who are flying illegal immigrants around the country, DeSantis said, “They’ve done over 70 flights in the last six months, dump people here. And we had – a few weeks ago – one of those people that Biden dumped, ended up committing a murder in northeast Florida.”

“Our view is, if they’re going to be dumping, we want to be able to facilitate transfer to places like Delaware, and, so, we have $8 million in my new budget to be able to do that” he added. He is also looking to pass legislation which will ban contractors who work with the Biden administration on the flights from doing business with the state of Florida.

We are going to pass legislation that says if you are facilitating Biden’s policies—which is effectively a mass human smuggling operation—you are not going to be able to do business with the state of Florida or other local governments,” DeSantis said.

Fox News reports “DeSantis’s office has previously claimed that the Biden administration has flown migrants to Jacksonville, Fla., in order to ease crowding at border facilities.”

“On average, there’s 36 passengers on each of these flights. And that has been going on over the course of the summer through September,” Florida public safety czar Larry Keefe told the Washington Examiner in November.

Earlier this year, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed a New York Post report that the administration was flying migrants from Texas to New York. Psaki said unaccompanied minors on those flights were “en route to their final destination to be reunified with their parents or vetted sponsor” reports Fox News.

Former DEA Agent who Conspired with Colombian Cartel Sentenced to 12 Years

Published

on

Jose Irizarry

Despite his attorney’s interesting defense that “when my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt” former agent Jose Irizarry has been sentenced. The former U.S. narcotics agent “used his badge to build a lavish lifestyle of expensive cars, parties on yachts and Tiffany jewels” reports NBC News.

Irizarry was sentenced to “more than 12 years in federal prison Thursday for conspiring to launder money with a Colombian cartel.” Irizarry admitted to his crimes, but the defense for his case was to blame his former colleagues at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

“When my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt, he was schooled in how to break the law” said his attorney Maria Dominguez in court. “In this alternate universe it became easier and less suspect to accept money and gifts” from criminal informants who worked with the narcotics agency.

In handing down her sentence Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Charlene Honeywell addressed any failings by the DEA for its handling of corrupt agents by “the allure of easy money.” She said it also needed to be investigated.

“This has to stop…you were the one who got caught but it is apparent to this court that there are others.” NBC News reports:

Irizarry’s allegations underscore the porous oversight he received during his career, in which he was entrusted with the government’s use of front companies, shell bank accounts and couriers to combat international drug trafficking.

They also raise new questions about whether his colleagues in the Miami field office, where Irizarry’s criminal activity began, similarly abused the badge in their handling of confidential informants who every year move tens of millions of dollars in dirty money under the DEA’s supervision.

Dominguez in court filings revealed that since Irizarry’s arrest last year he has met with prosecutors for “endless hours” to provide information on the criminal activities of “fellow law-enforcement agents who initiated him in a life of crime.”

Honeywell recently sealed “sensitive” documents filed in the criminal case, saying their disclosure could potentially impede an ongoing criminal investigation, cause targets to flee and hinder cooperation from other witnesses. So far, other than Irizarry’s wife, Nathalia Gomez-Irizarry, and a Colombian customs worker, nobody else has been charged in the conspiracy.
